Nature uses many different ways to create or distribute energy and to produce food. Close observation of nature can bring a clean sustainable society much closer much sooner.

Researchers have now discovered a new method to convert this organic waste matter into a porous carbon material that can be used to produce high-tech electronics. They were able to convert tree leaves into a form that could be incorporated into electrodes as active conductive materials.
